He regularly prosecutes patent applications in various high technology, pharmaceutical and mechanical fields, including fintech, medical devices, automotive, telecommunications and the Internet of Things.

Steve is skilled at preparing patentability and freedom-to-operate opinions, and he advises on patentability, IP validity and infringement, and trade secret protection programs. In addition, Steve conducts IP due diligence on complex corporate transactions, and he routinely advises on related matters, such as employee IP, open source software, IP encumbrances, IP strategy and trade secret protection.

Steve’s depth of experience also includes drafting, negotiating and reviewing a variety of commercial and IP contracts, including IP license agreements, master services agreements, transition services agreements, joint development agreements, non-disclosure agreements and IP assignment agreements.
